Random Mixes



Year of the Cock (or Happy 2005)


I got this CD from Saff before she left for her Grand Adventure in the UK. I'd like to think that while facing all the stresses accompanying studying abroad, making this cd was a soothing process for her. This mix kept me sane at the office during one of our many Sunday night software upgrades. I regrouped with Calculation Theme or This is the Sound a Heart Makes When Its Breaking and prepared to get back into gear with We R in Need of a Revolution or The Storm is Coming. Oh, and the titillating title got me a few raised eyebrows at work.

To the Class of 2006...

Our cousin, who is THE source of C-Pop music, once mentioned he rarely listened to American music (insert gasp). When he invited us to his high school graduation--which coincided with our ten year high school reunion--it made for an opportunity to introduce him to mainstream American music...well, sorta. Times may have changed, but the rituals and rites of passage that comes with graduating remains constant (read: embarassing family member, represent!). Note: I didn't think to ask ahead of time his school mascot (which turned out to be bulldog) and vaguely recall downloading Baha Men's Who Let The Dogs Out? to play while he went to pick up his fake diploma.
